Orange teams up with security firms for VPN, encryption services

Introduces various changes to its secure connectivity portfolio

By CBR Staff Writer

Orange has signed two partnerships with Becrypt, a software encryption specialist, and Barron McCann, a specialist in data encryption, to deliver a range of offerings to customers matching their specific network security needs.

In addition, Orange is introducing various changes to its secure connectivity portfolio, to provide customers with confidence that their data is protected when using mobile communications. 

Under the partnership, Becrypt will encrypt the data, making impossible to access by others, Barron McCann securely converts the data as it travels from one place to another so that it cannot be threatened by unauthorised access while in transit.

Orange said that its Managed VPN offers secure, high speed access to business services and applications remotely on a business device. The company is also boosting the availability of its Managed VPN systems by increasing the range of connectivity and back-up options for customers.

Orange uses USIM exclusively for 3G / 3G+ traffic. The USIM allows a mobile device to check that the network for bona-fide and secure. This is in addition to the normal SIM operation, where the network checks that the mobile device trying to connect to it is authorised to do so. 

Michael Lawrence, head of corporate propositions at Orange UK, said: "A complete refresh of our Managed VPN and partnering with the very best specialists to deliver secure connectivity demonstrates our commitment to achieve this.
